Description

Join us for our 3rd Annual Champions for Children Luncheon on Thursday, April 19th from 11:30am to 1:30pm at Burning Tree Golf and Country Club in Macomb Township, Michigan.

This year's special guest is Matthew Sandusky, Author, Advocate and Founder of the Peaceful Hearts Foundation. From the age of 8 through 16, Matthew was a victim of child sexual abuse at the hands of his adopted father, former Penn State University football coach, Jerry Sandusky. Matthew will share his inspirational story of how his traumatic childhood experiences were used as a catalyst to bring awareness to the taboo topic of child sexual abuse, to keep children protected and to help other survivors heal. Matthew recently published his memoir, "Undaunted", hoping that sharing his story would motivate others to prevent child sexual abuse and create a safe society for survivors to heal. Through the Peaceful Hearts Foundation, which Matthew founded with his wife Kim, he works to advocate for survivors of sexual abuse, raise awareness, and promote stronger legislation to fight child sexual abuse.Following his luncheon presentation, Mr. Sandusky will hold a book signing.

Care House also uses our annual luncheon to pay recognition to deserving individuals who have shown a passion for protecting children and families in our community. We are very pleased to announce the following honorees for our 2018 Champion for Children award:

  • The Honorable Sander Levin, Congressman - 9th Congressional District

  • Michael Patterson, Director of Children's Services - Macomb Dept of Health and Human Services

  • Suzanne Goll, Care House Volunteer

  • Sandy Kush, Care House Volunteer

All proceeds benefit Care House of Macomb County in providing help, hope and healing to child victims of sexual and physical abuse. Tickets are $50 per person and sponsorship opportunities are also available. Call Care House for more information at (586) 463-0123.
